As the VA continues pushing anti-worker proposals at the bargaining table, it’s abundantly clear that they are not bargaining in good faith under the leadership of their Chief Negotiator Kurt Martin. We’ve been fighting at the table since March, and it’s now time for a full court press.
That’s why thousands of AFGE members have already joined our call on Secretary McDonough to #ReplaceKurt. But we can’t stop there – and that’s why we’re asking you to share this graphic on Facebook to make sure everyone knows that Kurt Martin is standing in our way of a fair workers contract at the VA.
We need a new VA Chief Negotiator who is committed to empowering workers and strengthening collective bargaining rights. To do that, we need your help to make our voices heard. Don’t forget to sign the petition to #ReplaceKurt if you haven’t already!
Once signed, please share this graphic on social media to let everyone know that Secretary McDonough needs to replace Kurt Martin and appoint a new Chief Negotiator.
Thanks for all you do! Together, we will secure a fair contract.
President Alma Lee
